Police arrest man driving boom lift at 3 a.m.

Key Excerpt: The man, who apparently had been drinking, was in the lift bucket of the Genie Boom with an unopened six-pack of beer and a bag of beef jerky when police pulled the vehicle over. He was clocked at 2 mph.

Ah, beer and beef jerky... The Breakfast of Champions.

An important part of this delusional breakfast.

Mebbe he din't have his SMV sign properly displayed ... probable cause to pull him over (and down?) ...

and ... again with the out-of-region "news media" pickin' on other folks ... Miami must hope that the world will forget about their "scenic wonders and tourist attraction shoot-outs" if they point up the foibles of a Washington beer-drinkin' construction equipment driver ... ah, well ... whutever it takes, right, Miami?

whassamatta occifer?

As long as alcohol is involved,behavior such as this is perfectly acceptable,officer,and expected.

Well...you gots your protein and your carbs

Police should be able to tack on an extra charge for "drunk with intent on being stupid" in some of these cases.

Police knew something wasn't quite right after they spotted a man driving a piece of construction lift equipment down a street at 3 a.m. on Thursday. .....

The man was jailed for investigation of theft.


Last night I had a crazy dream
About a stranger on a Craigslist site
Oh, she wanted to see my equipment
This couldn't be real
She must be a magic genie

So I grabbed a six-pack and beef jerky
But as I drove it there the fuzz stopped me
I told 'em I was going to the store
But they didn't believe me
They asked me why I sat up in that bucket
So I told 'em 'bout the Craigslist chick
I told 'em it was on a dare

And what I told 'em musta sounded freaky

Genie Boom Genie Boom
Don't ya jes' love it
Genie Boom Genie Boom
Don't you jes' love it
Genie Boom Genie Boom
Don't ya jes' love it
Genie Boom Genie Boom Boom Booom

*snork* @ Cat! I love the song.

We could all tell he was high.

He shoulda stole a road grader or a steam-roller, maybe a giant front-loader. Cops rarely pull those over. And you can squash their car.

" He was clocked at 2 mph."
Don't tell me they really pulled out the radar. They could have eaten another half dozen donuts before he got to the next block.
